London's cosiest restaurants with fires + Bankside Test Drive & weekend tips | Hot Dinners
They recommend sweet tea for a shock don't they? Well how about letting London's hospitality folk put you back together again instead? After this week's events, the idea of some great bar snacks, a strong cocktail and a hearty meal - ideally enjoyed beside a real fire - is just what the spindoctor ordered.
Here's what you should be trying out in the run up to and over the weekend.
Like street food but not great about being out in the cold? Head to Peckham Feastival where they're taking the whole street food thing indoors for the winter.
However if you ARE hardy, the Southbank Winter Festival kicks off for the season today too with more mulled wine than you can shake a cinnamon stick at.
If you are inspired by the release of today's John Lewis Christmas advert, you can head up to the rooftop of their Oxford Street store which has reopened now for the winter with Mac n Wild doing the food.
Love Iberico pork? Then head to Soho where Lobos Meat and Tapas has just opened its doors (and is on soft launch till Saturday).
Chef Neil Rankin (ex-Smokehouse and Bad Egg) has launched his new place Temper, also in Soho. It's on soft launch too (if you can get a table) until Friday.
And over in East London two folk from Rita's have opened Quilombero - an Italian meets Argentina spot - with dinner starting tonight.
